Apricot Cherry Jam Recipe



Hi Friends!

 Today we are making homemade Apricot Jam. Jelly is delicious, but Jam is DELICIOUS!!!

The recipe for this batch of Apricot Jam is adapted from

Sweet And Savory by Shinee

I added pitted Bing Cherries to the recipe for a Sweet & Sour taste!

This recipe makes about 14  half pints.(I had a bit left over and just make some yummy fruit leather with it!!)LINK

Here is the recipe for Apricot Cherry Jam.

Ingredients:

Regular Apricot Jam:
  • 5 cups apricot puree
  •  5 cups cherry puree
  • 6 cups (600gr) sugar
  • 9-10 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice (about 3)
Directions:

for Adapted Apricot Cherry Jam:
  1. Simmer the jars in a large canning pot. Do the same thing with lids and rings in separate pot.
    I like to switch up a lime for a lemon.

  2. In a large pot, combine all the ingredients and simmer over medium heat until the sugar (or honey) is dissolved, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Increase the heat to medium high and bring the mixture to a rolling boil.

    Stirring constantly, cook the jam for 30-40 minutes, or until it reaches 220°F (104°C).

  3. Pour the jam into hot sterile jars. Leave about ¼ inches from the top. Clean the edges of the jars with a damp paper towel. Put the lid on and tighten the ring around them, but not too tight.
  4. Place the jars back into the canning pot with hot water. Water should be about 4 inches (10cm) over the jars. Bring it back to rolling boil and boil for 10 minutes. Transfer the jars onto a cooling rack and let them cool overnight. You will hear popping sounds, which is good thing. It’s a great sign that your jars are being sealed.
